    We use 2 x 4 inch welded wire for the sides and on the inside of that from the ground up about 2 feet we put chicken wire. On the top we use 2 inch avaian netting

    I use 1 inch galvinized poultry netting by 6ft. high. A 50 ft. roll runs about $50.00, After iput up the netting, I go around the bottom on the outside of the pen with 1/2 hardware cloth,2 or 3ft. high,this is to predator proof it some. Raccoons will break wire,i have had it happen acouple of times. Also solar lights called night guards work good on predators after you get your pens built.

    Look On Ebay Under Poultry Or Avaian Netting.I Made My Pen Ten Ft. Wide And Fifty Foot Long.The Ten By Fifty Ft Netting Cost $34.95 Free Shipping. The Poultry Wire Was $98.95 For A 56 Inch High By 150ft Long Roll. The Wire Cloth Is 24 inch High 10ft Long 10.95 Per Roll. I Cut What Was Left Of The Poultry Wire Down The Middle And Made My Pen About 7ft High.This Is What It Looks Like. [​IMG]
